Our family had our FIRST Thanksgiving get together this evening. It was hosted by my 89 year old aunt. Aunt Juanita began having the family over every Thanksgiving about 10 years ago. Back then she said, "I wanted to get everyone together because this may be the last time that I see all of you." Now ten years later, she says, "Well...Again I wanted to get everyone together, but it looks like I am going to be around for awhile longer...LOL."
And THAT, I don't doubt. You see, Aunt Juanita has ALWAYS followed the 'healthy lifestyle' path. She eats healthy, drinks water, and exercises. She stays busy by being active in her church and community events; doing crafts; gardening; playing cards, and teaching line dance classes (about 6 hours a week). In addition she attends ballroom dances several hours each week.
Aunt Juanita is 89 years old, and she takes no medication for any type of health problems. HMMMM...This leads one to believe that there really IS something to this "Healthy Lifestyle" thing!
Oh, before leaving Aunt Juanita's tonight, we all made plans to meet at HER house again next year for Thanksgiving..LOL.
Take care ALL, and BEST WISHES in reaching your health and fitness goals.
